Welcome to Indiana on Ballotpedia!


The government of Indiana is established and regulated by the Constitution of Indiana. With the state-level government consisting of three branches - the judicial, the legislative and the executive branches - a balance of shared power jointly governs the state. The government of Indiana was first formed in December 1816 when it replaced the government of the Indiana Territory. This early government came under criticism in the 1820s due to having many public offices filled by appointment and a lack of delegation of authority to lower officials, requiring state-level legislation for things like divorce approval. In 1851, a new constitution was adopted by the state remedying many of these problems and opening many more offices to public election.

Indiana has two members of the U.S. Senate, a total of nine members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 100 members of the Indiana House of Representatives and 25 members of the Indiana State Senate.
